The shooter has been taken into custody and let’s hope he gets the death penalty he richly deserves.
Congressman Giffords was a liberal, but that does not matter now. No one should be the victim of violence because of their political beliefs and certainly a member of Congress should not be shot and killed on a street corner.
Take a moment to say a prayer for her and her family, as well as the others who were so tragically murdered this afternoon.
At a time like this, it is terrible that we do have to think about politics, but no matter what the shooter’s motivations where, the left is going to blame this on the Tea Party Movement. Already on liberal websites, the far left is trying to accuse the Tea Party of being involved.
While we need to take a moment to extend our sympathies to the families of those who died, we cannot allow the hard left to do what it tried to do in 1995 after the Oklahoma City bombing.
Within the entire political spectrum, there are extremists, both on the left and the right. Violence of this nature should be decried by everyone and not used for political gain.
UPDATE: At the time this was written, all the major news outlets were reporting Congressman Giffords had died. As of 3:10 CST, Doctors are now saying they are optimistic she will recover. As tragic as this situation is, I think we can all be happy that the Congressman survived this terrorist attack.
Someone lost a mom and a wife.. a daughter and a friend. Prayers to all that were there with Congresswoman Gibbords.
I am sure that all Tea Party groups as well as gun rights groups will get the blame for this.
I concur. A senseless act that will somehow be blamed on those who oppose the left's agenda. The administration will somehow blame it on the conservatives and push for more stringent laws against gun owners.
